An elephant never forgets — especially when it hears the sound of an approaching predator.

According to the recent research, Elephants — widely known as highly intelligent mammals — can identify different sexes, ages and even different ethnicities in human voices, a remarkable talent that underscores the animals’ sensitivity to social cues.

To reveal just how acute the listening ability of elephants is, researchers recorded the voices of men, women and children from two different African ethnic groups: the Maasai, cattle herders who frequently come into conflict with elephants, and the Kamba, farmers who rarely encounter elephants on that people’s cultivated lands.
